1:03 pm
hours of speculation and. total guesswork on where everyone is it does appear now that all members of the party in the government to the dreaded government claims is being sacked all around the wicket there will be a meeting of p d cats which is colors pushed him on his party at its headquarters people are arriving there right now this is going to give some power to it would seem on what exactly this group of what the spanish government describes as former ministers are going to do now apparently according to t.v. three public parts state owned t.v. channel the government is not going to assume its positions in the institutions however they are going to decide what action they go. to be taking
1:04 pm
as far as they're concerned. they have declared a republic that's what happened in parliament on a constitutional vote so it was a democratic vote they say by seventy to ten votes but of course we've what we've seen is article one five five roll out a flurry of sackings over the weekend and assertions from the spanish government that they are fully in control of this region and now what we're seeing also is some government ministers showing up for work came form the interior minister has arrived at his office prior to that we saw that. the minister of chela tree unsustainability he arrived at his office and there was a report that the most asked him to leave now he did leave later on but said to waiting reporters that he was just going about his duties but he along with others will arrive at this meeting of p.d.
1:05 pm
cat in their offices and are many thanks leslie with that story for you. as a political analyst he joins us live now from madrid miguel. do you think barcelona will ultimately except direct rule from madrid. well it is the acceptance in a way would were seen. i would say something extraordinary sort of a. soft handed the standard of if that sort of thing is possible both sides on the one hand you see yes several high ranking officials in the castle and government who have been these amazed by the imposition of the electoral are turning up for work meaning they are in the finance of these missiles but crucially they do it in a very i would say in a very clever way yes they enter their offices then they leave them they don't sign papers so they are more or less keep in in the free inch of legality and
1:06 pm
on the other hand that you have the spanish government should act perhaps more forcefully according to to what it has promised to do it would have for example arrested them but he's not doing that is doing is giving them a few hours they say to pick up their things and leave which means that the spanish government does not have a not put aside now for a standoff for a real standard for a confrontation with the dismissed cattle and regional government and this is understandable because both sides are now interested in the escalating this conflict for different reasons interesting the use the word legality between these elections that may or may not happen on the twenty first of december in your mind what's the judicial map that they may follow between today and just before christmas. well as we have from your correspondent today a judge will decide which charges will be brought upon very senior counsel and
1:07 pm
politicians we're talking about the president the vice president the whole of the council and regional government the speaker of parliament now if these people are finally charged with sedition and rebellion these are very very serious crimes they carry sentences of up to thirty years in some cases this could in a way backfire and i think the government would be happy now to to stop all of these they have to use. these these potential charges subsidization as a as a deterrent that didn't work at the target and to prevent the catalan government from the clear independence but it didn't work and now that it didn't work i would say it is a problem for the government as much as for the for the catalan leaders who could be indicted because this could backfire this could render gys the base of the of the nationalist the secession is could come out in the streets in force they are now i would say they are now very depressed they are they are really losing momentum because of what happened on friday that their creation of the pens didn't
1:08 pm
go as they hoped the public is not real it's not really happening and then came these direct role so i would say the judicial thing is going to be taken i thing with some easiness is not going i mean if the government can influence in some way but how things developed in the judicial scene they will try to stop it i don't think they are interested in this now there are other consequences obviously something like twelve thousand companies have or are in the process of relocating out of this region one fifth of the spanish economy comes out of catalonia those businesses even the big businesses that find it easy to move out of the region the small businesses not so much but they want stability the markets wants to belittle who's going to give them that stability because you seem to be saying that both sides in this debate are kind of backed themselves into a corner. yes well the central government certainly hopes
1:09 pm
that the election in december will bring stability but that of course is provided the union is wane and the nationalists lose their majority this is now seems likely because of the past with the events in the past few days which have been disastrous for the match of the nationalists in front of the of their followers some believe that the nationalists have not acted forceful enough or those believe that they went too far so yes it's true that the nationalists are not in good shape now for the election but we have two months to go and many things can happen so it is a gamble on the part of the central government to respect to win those elections all the unionist parties to win those elections on the other side the nationalists what will bring stability from their point of view of course it would be the republic the cuts and republicans they have they have the cloud but this isn't seem to working at all is not just that it does not have international recognition which
1:10 pm
is essential for any new country but they themselves don't seem very keen on the friend in this republic they seem to understand that it was sort of an empty gesture symbolic very important that threshold in time so if you study called times but nothing that can be actually implemented on the ground we go and think you can answer me or is reiterating the importance of safeguarding his country's sovereignty but also his commitment to dialogue to resolve the gulf diplomatic crisis seek to me been hammered all funny was speaking to the u.s. t.v. program sixty minutes council has been on the blockade for almost five months after saudi arabia the u.a.e. bahrain and egypt cut diplomatic trade ties my kind of from washington. there was no sign of friction among gulf leaders when they met president trump on its first foreign trip it was all smiles and a common pledge to combat terrorism in all its forms it less than two weeks later

1:12 pm
qatar has denied any support for terrorism. offered this explanation as to why the taliban was allowed to open an office in doha the reason why they came here it's not because we asked them to come here because other people like the united states america united states wanted the taliban here they wanted to have dialogue so they asked us if we can host them here and have the dialogue so that we host of them here this is the reason why they're here how what they say and we want to turn and believe me charlie we want to turn. but nothing is going to be about our dignity our sovereignty but we want to turn i only say that if they get no walk one meters toward me i'm willing to walk ten thousand miles towards them but maybe left to others to persuade those continuing the blockade to take that first step mike hanna al-jazeera washington. bahrain's foreign minister is calling for cas are to be frozen out of the regional bloc the gulf cooperation council bin ahmed al

1:14 pm
small pockets of resistance. the seventh round of talks aimed at ending the six year long war in syria they're getting underway in the cassock capital a stana meeting is expected to call for a cease fire between government forces and rebel groups for at least six months the clearance of mines prisoner swaps and the release of hostages also on the agenda the talks are sponsored by iran and russia which support the syrian government and turkey which backs the rebels imran khan joins us live now from our stana imran over to you. well let me just tell you that the talks as you say are under way they're very much of a technical nature right now the russians the iranians and the turks are meeting they're discussing what role to take in those destabilized deescalation zones that have been established four of them of the six round of talks that took place here in september now the syrian opposition are also here i'm joined now by consultant
1:15 pm
to the syrian opposition are really welcome to our jazeera firstly before we get into what it is that you want to see from these talks let's talk about the u.s. secretary of state to this and he said he wants independent verifiable elections but he doesn't see the family having any future role in syrian politics is that realistic and will you work with a set if you remains in any sort of role any sort of political role. well. look at these things this in mystically they would say that we are we have heard these statements these are official statements by american officers so over other times and nothing has happened and at the same time they can say to you that they. it is this such statements made by american officials are part of the tension between the united states and russia. if they are to look at it optimistically they would they would say that it is
1:16 pm
a high really high time for american officials for american general and took his allies its policy towards syria and to see something on the ground however they say that the proof of the british. and. concerning living with this brutal regime i don't think that this is possible because such a regime is the best description for continue which of terrorism could do to a war continue with your bloodshed in syria if the world is quite serious to make the rule of law. and order take effect in syria they should definitely go back to geneva and make political transition in syria let's talk about the standard talks what is that they you're really looking for to come out from these talks is hostage exchange prison exchange one of the things that you're really pushing for well two things are considered the priority for the syrian opposition first is the issue of the detainees or the prisoners or the people or
1:17 pm
almost three hundred thousand people taken hostage actually. and such an issue is beyond negotiations and it has been stated in articles twelve thirteen fourteen in. geneva. solution two to five four and it is really high. time for the world to interfere and put an end to such as tragedy of those people the second thing is the creation earlier which are being breached by that is g.m. and iran on almost daily basis and russia is a go into and it's supposed to do something about that. let's talk now about the idea of the syrian opposition you guys are far from unified there has been issues between you in the past however do you think that because of to listens comments about president bashar last night because of the istana talks going the way they
1:18 pm
are that you can unify that you can become one unified block is that something that you're looking forward to doing well you know the issue of the opposition being fragmented and the. goal has been used as a pretext on the part of the dream on the part of iran in the part of russia and the in the so-called moscow and cairo platforms in two to five four is no more than pretext for the enforcement of such a prick mentation and the discrediting of the opposition the alternate goal of russia actually is the key being or recycling such a regime and such a thing would not work and they are trying to continuously to discredit as but. in a sense the opposition is unified but it is just the format is what they are looking for and the format can never be more important than substance they say
1:19 pm
thank you very much these talks continue here in a start over the next coming days we should be having a press conference tomorrow i'll update you more when we hear what they say when we hear about iran thanks very much. there is as of today a factional dispute within the kurdish parliament in iraq after the president asked for buzz and he said he won't be standing for another term in office he was the driving force behind last month's controversial referendum on succession which triggered that regional crisis stephanie dechen out. an independent kurdistan was supposed to be his legacy and yet it seems to have led to his downfall. a somber looking muscle but then he finally addressed the people directly on sunday night after relative silence for weeks one on one. according to the law the president's camp extended by the parliament however i informed the parliament and i will not extend my term i will not accept any amendment in the or
1:20 pm
to extend my term as president supporters of the president gathered outside parliament they managed to get into its grounds despite the presence of riot police at the entrance opposition media was attacked these men also asked around for the names of critical opposition m.p.'s but it didn't disrupt parliament which after hours of talks approved the redistribution of presidential powers among the government parliament and the judiciary after twelve years as president come wednesday by design he will take some lot of a back seat he remains head of the k.g.b. party and he'll still lead the high political council a body created to deal with the post referendum phase and he said he will remain what he called the highest rank of references to the peshmerga featured heavily in his televised address last saturday. in the fight against eisel the peshmerga showed great bravery to the people of kurdistan china defending spirit the international community came here the role of the peshmerga the people of kurdistan but unfortunately at the time they had to show action they all went back to their
1:21 pm
own interests and all the principles disappeared you also referenced a kurdish proverb saying again we realize that the kurds only have the mountains as our friends but he also mentioned the betrayal over losing her cook in reference to fellow kurds in an opposition party at the end of his address present must food but is that the kurds to be unified they've always been internal divisions here but the aftermath of that controversial referendum seems to have widened those cracks in kurdish unity could perhaps be the biggest challenge in the short term stephanie decker al-jazeera. saudi arabia has accused iran of destroying efforts to end the war in yemen it says who see rebels couldn't operate without the backing of tehran with no end in sight the u.n. says the humanitarian situation is worsening here some of the injured aid. for more than two years this has been the situation in many many cities a prolonged war between a saudi led coalition and crew iran who the rebels. and the humanitarian conditions

1:43 pm
mexico you can almost reach out and touch it. the dream of many is to get to the other side and that's where mexican cartels have scented an opportunity smuggling across those without visas for a price. what's little known is to do that they're increasingly relying on mine is as people smugglers they call them towards. this fourteen year old boy is one of them like others we talked to two hundred dollars for every mexican he takes across five hundred percent from americans with the money i can do many things buy clothes and you do many things for my family. the cartels recruit put your details in the poorer parts of quantities they can a more in a single night than their parents do in four months working in the cities border factories. government officials told us that strong young people into the business
